Hi I'm Monica

I'm a single mother of a teen & a toddler. I am a Registered Veterinary Technician (RVT) & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work part-time in a small animal Veterinary clinic, everyday is an adventure & I'm always learning. I have a brilliant/hilarious teen daughter in miidle school & a rambunctious/silly son quickly growing past his toddler stage. With both of them & my work I stay quite busy & rarely find time to myself. When I have an opportunity to go out with my kids I prefer to go to the beach, check out a movie at the Drive-in, have fun at an amusement park, take a stroll around the neighborhood or order some take-out & watch a DVD.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, but I hadn't taken advantage of what the church had to offer. Basically, I didn't grow up making the right/ good choices. As a young adult I found out I was pregnant & I started pondering what kind of mother I wanted to be for my child. What kind of example was I going to be for him/her? So I decided I needed to take a step & I began to pray. As I prayed more I began to feel different. With time I opened my scriptures & began to develop a relationship with my Heavenly Father. Eventually, I was able to realize the love my Heavenly Father had for me, & that I was His daughter. I've been a spiritually active member of the church for 12 years now. I am thankful that I have learned how to go through each day with a prayer in my heart & a knowledge that my Heavenly Father is always waiting to help me through everything.

How I live my faith

I've accepted various callings in my Ward (congregation): When I was young-the pianist for the Young Women. As a Young Adult- I was a Gospel Doctrine (Sunday Schoo) Teacher, a teacher in the Relief Society (a class for the womens group), & pianist. As an adult- I've taught the Primary (children ages 2-11yrs) as a teacher & music leader. I've also attended the temple regularly as a volunteer & patron. Overall, I've done my best to accept callings when presented with them because they are presented to me from my Lord. Recently, I've been better about sharing my love for the gospel with my friends.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

First step is sincerely wanting an answer to a question. To prepare to receive the true answer it helps to read from good materials like the Holy Bible or The Book of Mormon. When you are ready it's good to go to a quiet room where you won't be disturbed, get on your knees, close your eyes & ask Heavenly Father to reveal to you if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is His. When you receive your answer it's good to offer a quick prayer of thanks to show you understood that you received an answer. Show more Show less
